I looked at the website. Where did you see that the DVD was available?

Details of "The Hobart Shakespeareans," made the flesh creep. Mr 
Esquith's appalling programme enlists his students in exactly the set-up 
that oppresses them. No wonder the poor wretches are invited to perform 
with the Royal Shakespeare Company. No wonder large corporations shower 
money on his programme. No wonder his ludicrously sentimental 
pronouncements find favour. The arrangement whereby each child receives 
a monthly "paycheck" in a classroom currency, and then pays 'rent' to 
sit at a desk makes the blood run cold.  This is merely a self-deluding 
and ultimately corrupting endorsement of the status quo. Isn't the 
purpose of education to challenge it?
